Directed by Seijun Suzuki. 92 minutes. 

Not Rated. Japanese with subtitles.

When a mysterious stranger muscles into two rival yakuza gangs, Tokyo's underworld explodes with violence.

YOUTH OF THE BEAST was a breakthrough for director Seijun Suzuki, introducing the flamboyant colors, hallucinatory images, and striking compositions that would become his trademark.

Frequent Suzuki collaborator Jô Shishido radiates cool as a thug looking to play both sides to his own benefit.
